SAINT-FRANCOISE-DE-LOTBINIERE, Que. - A rural landlord who thought she was just dealing with absentee tenants instead found a horror show of dead chickens, calves and rabbits.

A pony is also missing and the house southwest of Quebec City was completely ransacked.

Sarah Montminy discovered the destruction last weekend when she visited her home after the young tenants abandoned it.

"The dead animals are frozen to the ground," said Montminy. "I can't remove them until it thaws. They're out in the open."

She fears what she might find - and smell - once spring comes.

"They had a pony," she says. "The neighbour didn't see it out, so I do not know if it's gone or if it's under the snow."

What she found in her shed was equally disturbing.

"There are about two feet of frozen excrement, dead calves, one was burned that they probably tried to kill, and dead chickens," said Montminy.
